The way we use it depends on whether or not it is something of benefit for us. What do I mean by that?
Well, think about the mobile phone. It can either be a source of distraction: sitting on it for hours scrolling through social media, playing games all day or even just using it to take selfies for ages. Or, it can be a tool for development: you use it to research different topics, you solve complication mathematical equations involving your savings on it and you take part in meaningful conversations with others.
You’re probably wondering how to use the technology you have as a tool for development more often (let’s be honest sometimes having it as a distraction is helpful… ahh the joys of a little bit of procrastination).
